ewing, nj 08618
United States

I thought is was time to update my shop info on lumberjocks
My shop is most of a old small 1 car garage
9’ x 14’
Every wall is covered, I even mounted my tennoning sled on the celing

In the first picture you can see my table saw/router table (see project) with my new outfeed leading to my work bench. This setup is excelent

in picture number 2 you can see my jointer small clamprack, fastener assortment and lumber rack,

in picture 3 you can see my sander, band saw and tool storage

Picture 4 shows my crosscut sled, taper sled and assorted jigs

picture 5 shows large clamp rack

picture 6 shows drill press miter saw and my gladiator cabinets that store all power tools, no theft of my festool thank you very much

Doing the best I can with very little space.
Thanks for looking.


I am a tool collector I have made only 2 finished pieces so far a chess board and a table
They cost about $5000 to make if you include all tools and wood
My favorite brand of power tool is bosch I have 24 V cordless pack with circular saw, drill, sawzall, jigsaw Also have a 12v impact driver i like alot have the 1617 router set with all accessories have a portable belt sander
I have some delta 6” extreme series jointer 12 or 13” planer and a hollow chisel mortiser
Ridgid 6” orbital sander was my first ridgid and i love it, the cord is great they have little lighted pictures of the tool on theplug so you can see it is powered and which tool it is also bought the 1/4 sheet pad sander and the ts 3650 tablesaw
Dewalt I have a biscuit jointer and a drill
Ryobi bench top sander and drill press as well as hand planer
Bessy i have some old Kbodys and recently bought some Revo Kbodys i love them so much

My clamp rack

The new ridgid Price $274.99 plus tax (brand new bought on 11/27/09) I could not believe the dusty box on the floor of my home depot. I rushed home went on the web including lumber jocks to make sure it was for real. and went back and got it. Built it in 3 hours, Adjusted it for 5 hours. Works great but i miss the guard on the bosch it was much better.

It looks like you have a nice shop in which to work. It appears as if you have addressed a common problem that we all have- how to store clamps- fairly successfully. That is a nice clamp rack that you have in your shop. It keeps them organized and readily available. It looks like you have a nice set of tools as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Nice shop, I like the stand for your old table saw… is there a new table saw in the works that we havent seen in the tour? Thanks for the post.

Nice toys. Do you have any particular shop projects you are proud of? I like the stand for the Bosch. I bet that would make a nice drill press cabinet if you decide to get a bench top unit…. Or maybe a planer stand…
